A criminal complaint filed by Yash Dugar, a Noida-based poker player has put Aditya Oberoi‘s ‘Thrill Poker’ and its operating company ‘Mirchi Entertaiment’ into neck-deep trouble. According to Dugar’s complaint, the company has not paid Dugar’s winnings and balance worth 8.9 Lakhs on their online poker portal, Thrill Poker.

Thrill Poker, just like any other Indian online poker website, offers poker enthusiasts with real gaming experience at the virtual felt. Dugar was also one of their customers until 2017 and had a total balance of approximately 15.80 lakhs in his poker account, as mentioned in his complaint.

Dugar’s complaint says that Mirch Entertainment and Oberoi has failed to pay the full amount of his balance and winnings. He has received only 6.90 Lakhs so far and that too in installments. A total amount of 8.90 lakhs is yet to paid by the company, since 2017. Dugar also mentioned that even after repeated mails, he only received false commitments of payment from the company.

When the mails did not work, Dugar approached the company through his advocate Siddharth Acharya with a legal notice but it was not taken seriously by the company. Dugar didn’t receive any response and thus was compelled to file the criminal complaint under Sections 417, 420 and other provisions of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), 1860, for cheating and fraud.

Dugar has also stated that Oberoi has sold his company to a foreign entity.
